Unflagging interest of the pedagogical thought of John Amos Comenius results from the universalism of his assumptions. A significant part of his views is reflected in the contempo-rary pedagogical concepts, and their topicality results from the humanism permeating his considerations of education. Thanks to it, it can be concluded that Comenius' views laid the foundations for the humanistic orientation of pedagogy, taking shape at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The aim of the article is to present John Amos Comenius’ views of happi-ness and to relate them to the assumptions of the currently developed psychological and peda-gogical research on happiness.
